Please note that we don't provide any support for this plugin in the comments section on this page anymore.

We appreciate your commendation and reviews for this plugin in the comments. For bug reports and support requests, please read the extensive information in the plugin's README file first and create, if needed, a ticket in the bug tracker which is linked below.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Example

With this module participants of a course can download all relevant course documents (files, folders as well as documents of student folders) in one step. Therefore users can save valueable time compared to single-downloads of files. One reasonable scenario might be the download of all files for a train journey, so all downloaded course files can be accessed offline.

Installation

Copy the code directly to the local/downloadcenter directory. Open the messages page in the administration area to automatically start the installation.

    Hi there,
    A question for you. Is it normal that each file generates a directory with the file inside it. For instance a section with 5 pdf will generate a folder for the section + 5 folders inside it, each one containing one pdf. Wouldn't it be better to preserve the moodle structure, i.e. 1 folder for the section containing the 5 files?
    Anyway great plugin wink I plan to publish the translation for it!

    Cheers

    Dear Antony, our developer checked the recommendations and we tested four different file sources, each as alias, including File System repository and it works with all four files, tested as a student as well. We are not able to reproduce your problem with the alias/shortcut thing. It would be great if you could give us more details where exactly you have problems or you would see an improvement opportunity. MAybe even a step-by-step guide how we could recreate the same situation you have.
    Thanks. Katarzyna Potocka

    Hi your tool is really great.
    It would be cool if you could add a role manager. We could choose in the (main) settings which roles are allowed to download or not the files. In our situation we would like to prohibit the use of this module to students, only the teachers could download the files.

    I hope that the function is not already existing that I missed during my research.

    Hi there! I just installed it for Moodle 3.8 and I having problems downloading a full course that includes scorm packages, mp4 videos and pdfs. The download button just show me the topics selected but it didn´t show their contents. Is like it can´t view the files "inside" the topic. All the topics are visible and without restrictions. Any recomendation? Thanks!

    PD: In the same course I included a Folder Resource that includes some of the files and in this case the downloader shows it ok and I can download it. The problem is the topics sections.
